Seven Ways to Save

On Wednesday night, we prepared for the spending fast. The fast begins on Saturday, April 25 and ends on May 1. I am really excited to see what comes as a result of the group fast.

In the meantime, I found a blog that offers seven ways to save.

I have to say, I don't agree with her on one topic which is, two people with two separate accounts can make a shared budget. I know. I've done it.

But read on. She offers some practical advice.

What are your money saving secrets?

Seven Day Spending Fast

Mindful Money: Seven Day Spending Fast
Facilitated by Chanda Jones, Personal Finance Coach

Transform your relationship to money ~ transform your life.

During the fast, we will refrain from spending for a week while we examine our core beliefs and habits around money. Chanda will provide coaching support over the course of the week. Participants will be required to journal or write each day of the fast. A set of questions will be posed (via email) as a guide to assist the journaling process.

Please note, that all entries will be submitted to Chanda at the end of the fast. Some of the information from the entries may be used in a future article for my blog. Anonymity is an option.

By participating in the Seven Day Spending Fast you will:
*Learn how to make meaningful financial decisions (regardless of how much you have).
*Gain clarity and create balance in your relationship to your finances.
*Share, support, and inspire others on their path to achieving financial freedom.

A group session and dinner will take place at my home, Wednesday, April 22 at 6:30 - 8:30pm. We will prepare for the upcoming fast during the group session (attendance is required). Please bring a journal and your date book with you.
